Article by Allan Wallace in Mandala October 2010

This article by Alan Wallace is a strong refutation of those who claim to be both Buddhist and Atheist. It is also a strong defence of religion against scientific materialism.

The Effects of the new Cosmology on Spiritual Life and Practice

Dates: 20-22 March 2009
Led by Sister Ishpriya, RSCJ

As a spiritual guide and clear-headed thinker, Sister Ishpriya is second to none. She has a remarkable gift of presenting ordinary, everyday events in a startling way that makes you sit up and wonder why you had not noticed this before.

Not only is she well worth hearing then, but she is also a joyful and challenging presenter. Maybe it’s because she is so good at reading “the signs of the times” that she can see the need to understand our place in a rapidly changing universe, and to take the urgent action being called for today. All this seemingly arises naturally from calmly reflecting in stillness and meditation. Or, as she prefers to put it, “mystics are mostly recognised by the courage of their choices and the strength of their decisions which releases the wisdom for action”.

Full details of this weekend are now available on the events page.

Meditation Retreat on Holy Isle (off the Isle of Arran) over Christmas

Dates: Dec 20th - 27th
Venue: Holy Isle (off the Isle of Arran)
Led by: Choden

The Holy Isle Community are holding a meditation retreat over the Christmas period (20-27 December) on Holy Isle, off the Isle of Arran in Scotland. It will be an antidote to the commercial busyness and over-indulgence of the 'festive period' and is an opportunity for meditation, reflection and relaxation on this serene and beautiful island.

The Holy Isle Community will offer basic instructions and guidance in meditation practice and set up a simple practice schedule. However, people will be free to join in as much or as little of the teaching and meditation as they choose.

Prices will be kept low. For more details and bookings see the Christmas Retreat page at the Holy Island Project Website.
